You missed a fun mid-day shoot, Adam.
Shooting is fun, but breaking stuff through gunfire is even more fun.
What we did was just the 5-stand, since it had so many different presentations.
8 different angles for the clays to fly, and you shoot 5 shells each from 5 different stations.
I did the first round with a gun that had a MODIFIED choke (good choice for this game, since some of the shots are pretty far),
but when I switched to my other shotgun that uses interchangeable choke tubes, I forgot that my usual "mod" choke tube was not in it-- I had left the IMP. CYL choke in there, and thus I was throwing wider patterns than would be ideal.
That meant I never got the satisfaction of really powdering a clay--blowing it into a ball of grey and orange dust. My widely-spread pellets would just crack it into a few big pieces, if I managed to hit at all.

We asked our patient and helpful trapper, who was pushing the buttons and keeping score, to give us "report pairs" instead of true pairs, to make it easier. That made it more fun.
Because, breaking stuff is fun!

Thank you to everyone who came.

I didn't get to use the old Marlin bolt action 12 ga, with its fixed full choke, but I brought it along just in case anybody wanted to do trapshooting.
